SNMP::Info::Layer2::HP - SNMP Interface to HP Procurve Switches



Max Baker


 # Let SNMP::Info determine the correct subclass for you.
 my $hp = new SNMP::Info(
                          AutoSpecify => 1,
                          Debug       => 1,
                          DestHost    => myswitch,
                          Community   => public,
                          Version     => 2
    or die "Cant connect to DestHost.\n";

 my $class      = $hp->class();
 print "SNMP::Info determined this device to fall under subclass : $class\n";


Provides abstraction to the configuration information obtainable from a HP ProCurve Switch via SNMP.

Note: Some HP Switches will connect via SNMP version 1, but a lot of config data will not be available. Make sure you try and connect with Version 2 first, and then fail back to version 1.

For speed or debugging purposes you can call the subclass directly, but not after determining a more specific class using the method above.

 my $hp = new SNMP::Info::Layer2::HP(...);

    Inherited Classes


    Required MIBs

RFC1271-MIB Included in V2 mibs from Cisco
HP-ICF-OID (this MIB new with SNMP::Info 0.8)
The last four MIBs listed are from HP and can be found at <> or <>

Change Log

Version 0.4 - Removed ENTITY-MIB e_*() methods to separate sub-class - SNMP::Info::Entity


These are methods that return scalar value from SNMP
$hp->cpu() Returns CPU Utilization in percentage.
$hp->log() Returns all the log entries from the switch’s log that are not Link up or down messages.
$hp->mem_free() Returns bytes of free memory
$hp->mem_total() Return bytes of total memory
$hp->mem_used() Returns bytes of used memory
$hp->model() Returns the model number of the HP Switch. Will translate between the HP Part number and the common model number with this map :

These are methods that return tables of information in the form of a reference to a hash.


$hp->interfaces() Uses $hp->i_description()
$hp->i_duplex() Returns reference to map of IIDs to current link duplex.
$hp->i_duplex_admin() Returns reference to hash of IIDs to admin duplex setting.
$hp->vendor_i_type() Returns reference to hash of IIDs to HP specific port type (hpSwitchPortType).
$hp->i_name() Crosses i_name() with $hp->e_name() using $hp->e_port() and i_alias()
$hp->peth_port_ifindex() Returns reference to hash of power Ethernet port table entries map back to interface index (c<ifIndex>)
agg_ports Returns a HASH reference mapping from slave to master port for each member of a port bundle on the device. Keys are ifIndex of the slave ports, Values are ifIndex of the corresponding master ports.
